Google's promo for its self-driving car prototype that made headlines last week was a hit. The spot, "A First Drive," features the tech giant's car, sans steering wheel or brake and accelerator pads, chauffeuring elderly and vision-impaired individuals around. Google is imagining the future of autonomous vehicles as a local, on-demand car service, and our reporter Gabe Nelson has the full story here. The spot comes in at No. 1 with 6,022,065 views.
Also new this week are dual World Cup spots from Hyundai and Kia. The Korean auto group is the official sponsor of the event, and is aiming to get as much bang for its buck possible. The first spot, "The Glorious Journey for All" from Hyundai, invites viewers and fans to submit their own World Cup-related photos and videos to a dedicated Web site that the automaker has created. It's ranked second by Visible Measures with 3,038,456 views. The Kia spot, "2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil," likens the creation of the World Cup stadium to the manufacturing of a car, complete with a Start/Stop button. It is ranked third by Visible Measures with 2,852,831 views.
